BBRC Private Equity

Founded in 2018 and based in New York, BBRC Private Equity invests in growing consumer and retail businesses.

We specialize on backing passionate founders and management teams to achieve their long term visions. We value brands with true distinction and we aspire to nurture those brands to new levels of growth and profitability.

 

We focus on growth equity, minority and majority equity investments in which managements teams retain a meaningful amount of ownership. Our typical investment ranges from $10M to $50M USD but we have the resources to invest over $100M in certain circumstances. We prefer to make long term investments where BBRC can support a company and a management team over an extended period of time.

 

With one sole source of capital, we make investment decisions quickly and we execute transactions swiftly. In addition, BBRC draws from over 40 years of investing experience in diverse businesses in diverse locations. Lastly, we are able to be creative and flexible in structuring transactions in order to provide financial solutions in a variety of ways.

 

With offices in New York and Sydney, BBRC benefits from a global perspective and an international network of executives and resources to bring to bear.
